We grill all the time at our house, from spring to late fall, and love to use rubs and this Garlic Rub is one of our favorites on steaks.

Garlic Rubbed Steak

The best way to maximize the flavor of this particular rub is to let the rub itself marinate, in an airtight container, for few days in the refrigerator so that the garlic can get the oil all ‘garlicky’ as my daughter would say. You can also add this garlic rub to your bread, rolls, or pizza!

Garlic Rub

1-2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher or regular salt
1 tsp coarsely ground pepper
1 T. fresh parsley
2-3 garlic cloves, crushed with a press

Optional: use 1 tsp of cayenne to give it more of a kick!

Mix together and spoon over steaks, turn over and spoon over the other side. Let your steaks marinate in the fridge for an hour or more.

Grill and eat!
